Student Knocks Out Teacher Over Video Game
I don’t think that I need to convince you that people in this country are just continually getting worse. Obviously, I don’t mean everybody is getting worse period they are many people, and I would say most people who are just law-abiding citizens who just want to be left alone and want to live their lives the best that they can. On the other hand, people who are not good people seem to be getting more violent and more hateful period I would even go as far as to say that the number of people who are like that is actually increasing as well. We see this a lot, especially in schools with younger people.
Take for instance an incident that recently happened in Palm Coast Florida in which a 17-year-old student assaulted a teacher’s aide and hit them so hard that they flew through the air onto the floor. After beating the woman for a few minutes, he then spit on her and told her that when he comes back, he would k*ll her.
Now you may be wondering what it is that led to this incident. It must have been pretty important right? Well, there you would be wrong, my friend. This whole incident came about because of a video game.
According to the press release put out by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office:
On February 21, 2023, the FCSO School Resource Deputies assigned to Matanzas High School were alerted to a paraprofessional employee being physically attacked on campus. Upon arrival, deputies located the female paraprofessional on the ground with severe injuries after an unprovoked attack by a male student.
The student was escorted from the area and later placed in custody. The 17-year-old student was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility and later turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice. The student has been charged with Felony Aggravated Battery with Bodily Harm.
The student stated that he was upset because the victim took his Nintendo Switch away from him during class. On surveillance footage from within the school, the student who is approximately 6’6” and 270 pounds, is shown walking fast toward the victim and pushing the victim several feet, knocking her to the school floor, which knocked her unconscious. The student is then shown kicking and punching the unconscious victim several times in the back and head. Others rushed in to help the victim who was unconscious during the entire assault and unable to protect herself. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries.
“The actions of this student are absolutely horrendous and completely uncalled for,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “We hope the victim will be able to recover, both mentally and physically, from this incident. Thankfully, students and staff members came to the victim’s aid before the SRDs could arrive. Our schools should be a safe place – for both employees and students.”
“Creating a safe learning and working environment on our campuses is critical. Violence is never an
appropriate reaction,” said Flagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt.
This guy is willing to screw up his life over a video game. That’s how bad it’s gotten.
